Las Vegas May 2017 & MDW Guide

Las Vegas May shows, events, concerts & clubs ramp up as Memorial Day Weekend kicks off summer

Average temperature low and high: 60°- 81°

You can count your summer started with Vegas in May. Strip off to a bikini by the pool or work on your tan as you enjoy the perfect weather that Las Vegas has to offer. With great holidays, like Memorial Day, on the horizon, you will want to make sure to book your reservations early and make sure to secure VIP passage to nightclubs and other hot events, as May is going to be sizzling. The busiest and most expensive times to visit in May will be Memorial Day Weekend (May 22-25) & Cinco de Mayo.

Things To Do In Las Vegas In May

Pool Parties

Marquee Day Club
Marquee Day Club
  • Drink FREE in Las Vegas: Lucky for you, LavishVegas knows where all the special events are that include free drinks and open bars. These free offers are at some of the hottest clubs and bars on the strip. Events are added without much notice. Check our bar page before and during your visit. Login with your Facebook account to review the special offers.
  • Pool parties begin to heat up in May, climaxing on Memorial Day weekend, as celebrities and top-ranked DJs head to these oases. Day clubs offer several options to accommodate your group. Digs such as daybeds typically start around $1K food and beverage spend. Request a cabana or daybed through LavishVegas to find out about comps and special deals.
Limo, cover and two drinks for $35-$40 each at Las Vegas Strip Clubs

Cinco De Mayo

Though not as busy as Memorial Day, the Fifth of May—and the weekend that follows—nonetheless draws partiers from all over North and South America to pregame for summer. Interested in the best spots for margs and Mexican food? Read more here.

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day marks the start of summer and is easily one of Las Vegas’ biggest weekends. Be sure to book your hotel early as revelers will pour in for three days of nonstop debauchery. Expect long lines for nightclubs and pool parties and inflated prices for club covers and hotel rooms.

Many locals will stay away from the Strip and head to Lake Mead. Like Havasu and Powell, its Arizona and Utah counterparts, Lake Meade is one of three reservoirs on the Colorado River famous for boating, jet skiing, and faux beaches. Memorial Day is one of its busiest weekend as locals and tourists flock to its shores for sun and fun.

Nightclub Bottle Service and VIP Package Deals

With summer arriving, nightclubs fill up quick. Partiers looking to skip the lines should plan on booking a VIP table. Unless money is no object, calling up the club directly is rarely the best option. The hottest clubs let LavishVegas fill their premium locations at a lower price than out-of-towners who call them directly for some weekend partying.

If your group isn't set on a specific DJ and just wants a great bottle deal, we can also help you book one of Las Vegas’ less crazy hot spots. You won’t wait in line, and we may even comp you a bottle. To get VIP table service and book a great bottle deal complete our form here.

Shows, Events & Concerts in May

New venues often mean new resident artists, and Monte Carlo’s Park Theater is no exception. After entertaining audiences for more than four decades, Cher brings her iconic pop act to Las Vegas in 2017, playing a series of shows throughout May.

May also marks the time Las Vegas’ most popular acts start appearing at least every weekend. Britney Spears continues her highly-rated show, “Piece of Me,” at Planet Hollywood throughout the month. After a couple months off, Celine Dion comes back to Caesar’s Palace Colosseum and Jennifer Lopez to the Axis at Planet Hollywood. And Mariah Carey returns to Vegas for to sing all 18 of her greatest hits in “#1 to Infinity.”

Book now because these diva shows sell out quick; the longer you wait, the more you often pay. And while it may seem like these stars perform often enough to buy tickets at the last minute, May crowds make certain seats are filled.

Eighties rock icon Billy Idol plays shows at Mandalay Bay’s House of Blues throughout the first half of May.

And if you can only see one show in May, make sure its the Memorial Day weekend blockbuster (05/28/2017), when New Kids on the Block, Paula Abdul, and Boyz II Men light up the stage at MGM’s T-Mobile Arena.

Mirage’s Terry Fator Theatre hosts some of America’s top comedy acts. Look for Wayne Brady (05/12/2017), Jay Leno (05/13/2017), Bill Maher (05/19–20/2017), and Gabriel Iglesias (05/27/2017).
